Promoting Single Sideband DX'ing on Six & Two Metres

QSL update:
Please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused but I no longer wish to send or receive any QSL cards either paper or on any electronic format.
I would like to thank my QSL manager Phil G3SWH who handled
all my QSL requests for both my M5BXB and OK8XB callsigns since 2008. G3SWH website

New 2m Yagi Design On Test:
The 'Enfield Yagi' by G6ODA is now on test. 9 elements on a 4m boom with a gain of 11.2dBD. Please send signals reports if heard. 

Six Metres Update:
I am dedicated to 6m DX'ing, DXCC and locator square hunting using SSB only. However, I have decided to scale back 6m activity to allow more time for 2m testing during the solar minimum years.  Antenna system is now reduced to a single 5 element Vargarda. Check out my 6m DX'ing page.

Remote Radio Testing:
I am currently testing remote and mobile remote operation of my home station using just an iPhone.  Check out my Remote Radio page here
